Summer Closet Swap with Raise
Do you need to swap out your closet for summer? Raise can help. It's a marketplace for buying and selling discounted gift cards. It's free to sign up and offers free shipping on the gift cards you buy. If you are selling a gift card, you choose the price. Raise accepts gift cards and merchandise credit from any brand or restaurant. What a genius idea! I can't wait to try it!
When I swap out my closet from spring to summer, a simpler mind frame kicks in. It's all about pieces that are functional and easy whether I need to dress for paddle boarding in the river or dinner and drinks. As soon as summer gets here, it feels like my schedule is nonstop so I look for pieces that are easy to throw on and that can make a statement on their own.

Club Monaco Jumper
I love jumpers for the simple reason that they can be dressed up or down depending on the day. This Club Monaco jumper really takes it to the next level with it's interesting cut and water color pattern. I feel like you could wear this with simple jewelry or no accessories at all and still look very put together.
My friend was wearing the cutest hat this past weekend. When I asked her where it was from she said Target. I went immediately to their website to see for myself. Here is where function meets fashion. If I can block my face and head from the sun and look cute doing it, I'm in. Best part is this hat looks good on and off the beach.
Land's End Rash Guard
Water sports are always better with a rash guard. Whether you need to protect delicate skin from a boogie board or from the sun, you might as well look cute doing it. I went paddle boarding over the weekend and I luckily was able to borrow my friend's rash guard. I wouldn't mind owning this adorable polka dot one from Land's End though!
Charles David Shoes
What's not to love about these shoes? Cool cutouts, bright colors and woven heels. These just feel like summer. They are like a flashback to the summer I went to the Caribbean. Everyone should have a piece that makes them feel like they are some place else.
